Default Valab AM3 vs Dalaudio vs Yakin tube?

I've got about $500 to spend, which amp do think is the best?
I was thinking i'd try the tube amp but then these chip amps seem simpler if not better.

The LM3886 is a great chip amp.
If you mean this one then it looks a very nice product although the specs quoted are wrong (typo maybe),

Look at the "bandwidth"

Ya i was getting ready to buy a Yakin 10l mc-13s, change the tubes, then i found the Valab am3, i don't see any review of it, mind you the reviews of the Yakin are bit sketchy. My gut tells me the Valab is better.
My two speakers are 1 energy and 1 orb speaker, so i guess either amp will be over kill. I'm using a t-amp from indeed right now, i can't say i'm unhappy with it but lack in power sometimes and could be fuller base. Of course my dac is important.
So go with Valab? they seem to know what they are talking about...
